A Curved Deck

A three tier design has a rectangular area for sitting and barbequing, a lower circular area for dining, and a ground level circular area for lounging.

The entrance to the deck is defined by a dry-laid circular stone wall.


The dense and beautiful Ipe wood decking looks almost nautical.


The railing details are carried throughout the true curve.


This view shows what "custom" is really all about, with a true curved railing made to the diameter of the deck.


A strong frame sits beneath the decking and ensures a long life.



Outdoor decks are a necessity of modern living, but must their design be so clumsy?

A deck can be graceful and functional at the same time. A strong frame, attention to details like elegant posts and ship-like decking, and unexpected design elements like true curved railings can come together in a well integrated answer to a modern need. This deck will last a lifetime.
